The program continues unchanged for the consultations, that is for the GEAK Plus (building energy certificate of the cantons with consultancy report) and for the impulse consultations «renewable heating». Applications for contributions to thermal insulation and Minergie renovations can still be submitted. For the assurances, the applicants have to be patient.
